Psalm 66:10 states: “For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried”.
I wanted direction, a clear sign of what to do in my current circumstances. I was shocked when I got the very news that God intended me to know. I trembled in shock, in fear, in confusion and disappointment. I did pray for direction and assistance, didn’t I? I recall telling God, “If it is your will, it will be.” Now that it is done, I want the cup to be taken away from me, for the pain is just too much.
I feel as if I am silver, being purified. I feel as if God is holding me steady as the impurities and chaff disintegrate. This is too much! In the midst of it, I thank you Jesus for Holding me-steady.You know what is best for me. (I can; believe I am saying that)
Malachai 3:1-3, ““Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap: and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, and they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness”
***I love you Jesus, you STILL remain.***
